康熙字典文字版 【巳集中】【牙字部】 㸦
【廣韻】互,俗作㸦。【韓愈·贈張籍張徹詩】交驚舌㸦舚。【柳宗元·夢歸賦】㸦參差之白黑。【註】㸦卽互字。【唐韻正】周禮牛人,凡祭祀共其牛牲之互。徐音㸦,詩楚茨傳曰:或陳于互。正義亦引周禮文,𠀤誤作牙,陳氏禮書曰:互牙古字通用,非也。中山詩話云:古稱駔儈,今謂牙,非也。劉道原云:本稱互郎,主互市。唐人書互爲㸦,㸦似牙字,因譌爲牙耳。舊唐書史思明傳,互市郎,安祿山傳,互市牙郎,蓋爲後人添一牙字。今通鑑亦作互市牙郞。漢書劉向傳,宗族磐互,師古曰:字或作牙,謂若犬牙相交入之意也。谷永傳,百官盤互,註同。是昔人以㸦爲互字,後轉而作牙,師古乃曲爲之說耳。〇按史書中以牙作互字用非一,唐韻正深辨其非,幷引古碑碣中之書互爲㸦者甚詳,皆歷歷可據,應从之。蓋牙有相錯義,故互字俗借作㸦,可附牙部。若竟書互爲牙,幷讀如牙字之音,誤矣。
